Can a Business or Person Own or Create a Pokestop or Gym?

In the last several days millions of diehard Pokemon Go users have been around town trying to level up and collect as many Pokemon characters as possible. The Pokedex is the new way to impress friends and family members. The only way users are going to advance in the game is to use Pokeballs and the best places to find those are at Pokestops. Some Pokestops have dozens and even hundreds of people coming to them every single hour. With this being the case, it comes as no surprise that businesses and even people are hoping to create or own a Pokestop.

Unfortunately, there is no way to own or create your own Pokestop. If you happen to live in a very populated area there is a good chance you will be able to access a Pokestop or Gym from your couch or even laying in your bed. If you live out in the country where there isn’t much going on, you may have to drive several miles to find a single Pokestop or gym.

In the near future, you will likely be able to submit your own Pokestops but do not expect them to be a business, restaurant or house. Pokestops are going to be monuments, schools, museums, murals, post offices, fire departments and other historical buildings. If you happen to have a business near a Pokestop you should be taking advantage of it now.
